“Look, Look, my heart is an open book.”
God knows what I think, what I feel at all times. “You know when I leave and when I get back.”TM “You precede and come after me.”NLT I don’t know how you do it… But you do. Your omniscience (know everything) your omnipresence (everywhere at same time) and your omnipotence (can do anything) just boggle my mind. I don’t understand how you can give each of us all of your personal attention at the same time. But you can, and you DO! That’s so beautiful… As a matter of fact, I can’t get away from you… “Oh sinner man, where ya gonna run to, oh sinner man, where ya gonna run to? Oh, sinner man, where ya gonna run to, all on that day” (Can you add the melody to that?) “I’ll run to the sea, sea won’t you hide me..” But you are there! I’ll run underground, you are there! I’ll run to the mountains, you are there. I’ll run to the stars, star won’t you hide me….. but you are there! I can’t run.. How wonderful… you are there to take care of me now matter where I am! Even when I try to get out from under your loving protection, you are there. I’ll run “to the far horizon . . you are already there waiting.” TM Then I realize also, oh, oh! “..He even sees me in the dark.” TM There is no place where you are not..
There is also nothing you don’t know. Especially about me personally. “Oh, yes, you shaped me first inside, then out! You formed me in my mother’s womb.”TM “You know me inside and out; you know every bone in my body. You know exactly how I was made.”TM That means, God knows my S.H.A.P.E.! (Only you at CBC will know what that means!) You have to come to class 301, “Discovering My Ministry” when we look very closely at ourselves to see how God has uniquely shaped each of us for ministry. S = spiritual gift. H = heart or passion. A = abilities. P = personality, E = experience. “All the stages of my life were spread out before you. You knew every day before I even lived them.”NLT
God, since you know me so well, you also know my motives – whether or not they are right. If “I’ve done anything wrong…” then reveal it to me and get me back “on the road” of a quality life (see TM).
“Take a strong light and search through the recesses of my heart, Lord. Find the things that do not belong there, and throw them out.”JT
